  5. Cracked Fog Light Bezel/Surround

    Alfa Giulietta
    Today I noticed that both of the chrome bezels/surrounds on my fog lights were cracked :eek: Has only one else's MY14 Giulietta suffered from this? They look a tight fit around the actual light, so I'm thinking its a combination of design error and really cheap plastic used. Not good :(
